    A murmur with the sound: dud dud dud dud dud dud dud dud ( say it really fast several times to ensure that you mimic a sound parallel to that you would actually hear)

    Is this some sort of revision for a biology exam? I thought everyone's exams had finished....

    I dunno, but I do know that they're pretty bad for you. Like they use corn and turn it in to HFCS (High fructose corn syrup), and then add it to stuff. It's used pretty heavily in the USA, and the gov't subsidises corn pretty heavily.

    It's made it's way here as "glucose syrup" but thankfully, we have less of it than the Americans do. I'd rather my sugar, than any sweeteners
    Yeah they can be pretty harmful.

    I was referring to fructose metablism though.

    Oh right, it seemed like something from an A level biology paper or something. What year of medicine are you in?

    Nerds like Blackshadow like to prepare ahead of next academic year.

    One should hear a harsh systolic murmur with high frequency.

    lol, what competition? And banned? That sounds harsh. Who banned you and for what reason?
    Well, it's meant to be friendly competiton but we did have banter (Fighting words ) it's part of the student induction for the company at a hotel

    Originally, our team was trailing behind by 2 points. They brought in guests from other departments to talk about the company, and then you were quizzed, or as a team you had to answer questions on a flip chart

    Then a health and safety guy came in and did his talk, and I continuously put my hand up, eventually getting us three points ahead of the other team (Just banned from his, and his is over now )

    On one of them, there was a prize of chocolate to be one. I don't think any one was as fussed about the chocolate. Every one wants the truck!

    We get to possibly win a toy truck, so every one has an incentive

    Consider it a lot of pain for a lot of gain. That reminds me, what I saw on Dara O Brian's science show, scientists are making a purely synthetic vaccine which imitates the virus exactly (ie: not a weakened form, therefore your body not giving a potentially weak response, if the virus actually attacks you) and they were able to do so by using a massive microscope, and engineered the synthetic "virus" atom by atom.

    Basically it had the exact same structure of the original virus, but the harmful protein of the virus simply isn't there, so it's the BEST vaccine we could ever have, maybe even some thousands of years in the future as well, unless we discover something even smaller than atoms lol

    Wow. Sounds believable as well, considering he's been working with them since 4.With that 9 year old girl, I think Bill Gates went out to meet her as well though I might be wrong
    She went to Microsoft and met him there

    Lol, he scored no A*'s. :pierre:
    Haha yeah just realised, quite strange.
    Actually looking at this it says A or A*, so who knows.

    I (a non-Pakistani) work with a few Pakistanis, what are a few things I can say to them to surprise them? Is "rabb rakha" appropriate or does the mention of God make that dodgy?

    They often speak to each other in (I think) Punjabi, so I like to surprise them with phrases I know to keep them on their toes, but I only know "kee hala" ("how are you?"), "tic-tac" ("so-so"), and "puddha" (an insult). I'm not sure if it's the same language (I think they're all Muslim), but so far they've mostly understood.
    It's fine, they won't find it dodgy.
    What kind of things do you want to say? Are they immigrants or from here?

    How is 'rabb rakha' pronounced?

    Just anything you think would be cool, as long as it's easy to remember. Could be 'hey buddy', could be 'my moose is on fire', could be slang.

    I'm not actually sure how to pronounce it, I've never heard or said it before, (or if I have heard it then can't remember) just looked it up on Google:cool:
    My knowledge of my mother tongue(s) is quite bad, so I'll wait for someone else to give you ideas.
